Powerballs are moist, nutty delicious bites made from eight ingredients: dates, walnuts, dried apricots, sprouted sunflower seeds, goji berries, hemp hearts, flaxseed meal and cinnamon. Sweet and scrumptious, Powerballs are the ideal snack or dessert that satisfies those sweet cravings we all get from time to time.
